Types of Fraud

If you have been a victim of fraud, there is a network of support and information available to you. Sometimes people choose not to report fraud or seek advice because they are embarrassed that they fell for a scam, con, swindle, or any other word used to describe the crime. Remember that fraud is a crime and that fraudsters will constantly reinvent themselves to find new ways of tricking people. Anyone could be a victim.

Fraud Types:
Postal Fraud
Telephone Fraud
Doorstep Fraud
Online Fraud
Romance Fraud
NHS Fraud

What to do if you’re a victim of fraud?
